In 1954, the founding chairman studied in a college of arts in Chicago, USA and had a part time job as a chef. He was struggling with a heavy, blunt, and rather dangerously pointed knife given to him and at times, he was almost injured by its unfriendly form. One day, the knife fell and broke its tip. It looked unsightly so he repaired it with a whetstone and the knife tip became rounded. The knife immediately became more user friendly and his job progressed very well. After he returned to Japan in 1958, his recollection of the round tipped knife pushed him to design safer, sharper, lighter and friendlier knives which resulted in the establishment of MAC Corporation.

With more than 2 registered patents and designs, today, over 30 million knives have been sold worldwide.

The trademark ‘MAC’ came from the first three letters of the word, MACROCOSM which means Big Universe. The chairman had chosen this word from his ambition and wanted MAC knives to be used all around the world.

The Straight-cutting "MAC Edge"
The characteristic of the MAC Edge is a hybrid type between the traditional Japanese single beveled chisel edge - Single Blade (KATABA) and the Western 'V' shaped edge - Double Edge (RYOBA). But slightly off-center, with an angle around 45.5 degrees. This edge is extremely versatile with the ultimate combination of sharpness and control, allowing both thin slicing and straight cuts.
